Staff Photo: Erin Evans. Sylvester Brown with the Georgia Department of Transportation had to drink quite a few cups of water to keep hydrated Tuesday as hot temperatures and hot asphalt make his job an uncomfortable and dangerous one this summer. Brown and other GDOT employees are working this week to pave over the old railroad tracks on Emory Street, just behind Newton Federal Bank. GDOT Highway Maintenance foreman Keith Reeves said they are trying to get the workmen out early and pay close attention to make sure everyone is getting enough fluids at frequent intervals.
